Quality is the paramount priority in the garment business. Whilst many alternative platforms provide bare minimum visibility to the quality aspects of production Smart Apparel has a customized feature that allows organizations to better understand the Quality Assurance Analysis (QA Analysis) of each product batch and garment.
Smart Apparel ensures a systematic reporting system that allows the capability to understand the sensitive specifications of the Pass/Fail of the QA Analysis. The system allows you to provide unrelenting control over the quality tests and the understanding of the underlying reasons contributing to the QA success.
Managing a large number of employees with a variety of skill level, motivation and productivity is the never-ending challenge of the garment industry. The skills and competence of the employee determine the production output and the sensitive aspects of the garment. Therefore, it is vital to ensure that employees are always encouraged to improve their skill and machinery user knowledge.
Smart Apparel has devised a unique Skill Matrix that monitors and identifies the cross capability of each employee in the production chain to ensure that all employees are capable and competent in the usage and knowledge of each equipment and production technology that the organization sustains. This allows the organization to anticipate the skills of labourers and assert them towards sustainable efficiency.
The critical advantage that this function brings upon the organization is that it allows the management to critically evaluate the training requirement of each employee based on the skill levels and cross-checking with the attendance and learning curve summary which would allow a more effective training planning and superior control of the output the employees produce.
Downtime/Lost Time Analysis
Smart Apparel is equipped with a sophisticated Lost Time Analysis calculation methodology that allows the organization to understand and eliminate the factors contributing to the underperformance of the organization’s productivity.
Calculating the Lost Time has become a tedious and complex activity whilst Smart Apparel emphasizes accurate calculation with the click of a button. Considering various factors that are contributing to the Lost Time of productivity, this calculation is a crucial element in the delivery of production batches and also the consistency of delivery.
Deriving from the Japanese terminology and the understanding of Lean Manufacturing and Just-In-Time Manufacturing (JIT), Kanban is one of the methods to achieve JIT. Smart Apparel is designed with strong roots in the Kanban system which demonstrates key performance indicators that are ideal to sustain efficient inventory levels and effective logistics control systems.
The Goal of the Kanban system is to minimize excess inventory buildup at any point in the production. Limits on the number of items at the supply points of the production cycle are established and controlled to reduce inventory tied up. Hence, utilizing Smart Apparel will ensure minimum quantities required are in place and would immediately inform the management if any measures are exceeded.
Kanban system is based around the sustainability of the critical factors of operation and the critical activity of the production. It thrives on understanding the necessary capacities of each resource and ensures that there is never a bottleneck created that would hinder the production and the expected outcome of quality and quantity. Smart Apparel is designed to ensure that Kanban strategies and tactics are applied in every aspect of the production facility and the manufacturing logistics. The system provides the management with the decision making KPIs that would ensure outstanding management innovation. The critical operation is identified and accounted for with sophisticated forecasts and numerical with the mathematical engineering behind Smart Apparel to ensure that the organization is operating at optimum capacity.
